Art of the World Gallery presents Icons from the Museums by Carlos Vega Faúndez debut. The exhibition offers a vast selection of over 30 recent artworks, which come exclusively from the celebrated @Museum Series of the Chilean-born, Spanish-based artist who focuses on the exploration of Pop Art, Photorealism, and his take on the still life.

Familiar artworks by Rothko, Fontana, and Miró are included in his homages. In addition to recalling other old masters and pioneers such as Botticelli, Vermeer, Gauguin, Monet, Manet, Mucha, Picasso, Mondrian, Lichtenstein, and Warhol, to name a few.
